Hey everyone,

I just posted an update on the Centurio campaign as well...

Again, I apologize for being unavailable lately. I've been completely buried with work and life responsibilities. I won't get into the details here but just wanted to assure you this project is still moving forward and that I haven't disappeared.

The Centurio project is almost completed and once I've completely finished with fulfillment on it then I can shift focus to getting this Stories project completed.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this insane time. -David

Quick update: not much to report yet
7 months ago – Wed, Jun 24, 2020 at 02:47:11 PM

Hey everyone,

Thank you again for your ongoing patience. We are making progress and these decks will get into your hands as soon as possible but there are still some ongoing delays due to Covid-related production timing as well as my personal schedule. I'm hoping to have more specific information on timeline soon and I plan to share that with you once it's more solidified.

As this project is more extensive with many more moving parts than my Centurio project, I expect it will take longer to coordinate everything as we're waiting for items from a number of different manufacturers. Everything is still behind schedule but I will keep you updated once I have any new information to share. I hope to have something more substantial and interesting to announce soon...

Thanks! -David

Overdue update — explanation and apologies!
8 months ago – Fri, May 22, 2020 at 02:00:59 PM

Hey all,

First of all I want to apologize for not having posted an update sooner as I know many of you are eager to understand what's happening with both of my Kickstarter projects. The past few months have been extremely busy for me and I've been meaning to post an update and keep you in the loop but haven't had time to really organize my thoughts and write an update of any real value. I should have at least posted something short and quick but I didn't and I'm sorry and I promise to keep you updated more regularly moving forward.

Two and a half months ago we welcomed a new baby into our household which has been absolutely amazing but also time and energy consuming. On top of that, due to the Corona virus issues that we're all facing, our older son's preschool has been closed so he's been at home all day every day. And in addition, projects at my day job have gotten much busier. All of this adds up to me being extremely busy and exhausted most of the time and honestly I just haven't had time to make much progress with any of my Vanda projects, which I handle entirely by myself.

The USPC has been closed for a while due to the virus as well, which means delays in all production for all customers on their end. They recently reopened though so the queue should start moving forward at this point.

The good news is that both of these projects will still move forward and the decks will still be produced and sent out as I know you are just as excited as I am to see these get printed. At this point there will be delays and I'm not yet sure what the new timeline will look like yet but I assure you these decks will eventually get into your hands.

In the meantime, I have a few other exciting tidbits to share which I will post about as soon as I can find time to put together all the details on everything. So please stay tuned for some fun announcements!

I very much appreciate your ongoing patience and understanding of delays and just ask that you continue to be patient and I will keep you updated of any progress on my end.

Thank you,

David

Quick update — artwork completed / delays on a couple items

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to share a quick update since I know there hasn't been much news to report on this yet...

We had to make some small adjustments to the artwork to finalize the art files for USPC. That's completed and we'll be in the production queue soon. I'm very excited to see the printed results and I think you're going to appreciate the details in these illustrations that Srdjan has created.

Also, I've had some delays as a result of slow responses from Cartamundi...I understand they're going through some internal reorganization which is slowing down communication on their end. It seems that they in fact can't print the jumbo deck at the size we would like (5"x7") and we're considering a couple alternative options for that particular deck. Rest assured the result will still be amazing and I'll share news with you once I have it of the final details.

Thank you for your patience.

-David
